This cozy cabin is everything you will need for that much needed escape from your hectic schedule. Tucked away in the woods and bordered by the National Forest you get to enjoy views that will take your breath away! There is no question that you will want to spend all of your time at this wonderful little cabin. From the minute you step into Bear Affair you will get the inviting feeling that you are home. When you drive up the driveway and see the National Forest lit up with our landscape lighting you will forget about all the hustle and bustle of life. This loft style cabin including an amazing King size bed upstairs that will have you wanting to sleep for days. There is a sleeper sofa if you plan to have any extra guests. When you first open the door you cannot miss the fireplace in the living room which provides added warmth on those cool winter nights. The fully stocked kitchen (with a bar style table for 2) is available should you choose to make your meals inside. But if you enjoy grilling then you have the grill outside on the deck overlooking the Forest. On the opposite side of the cabin is our outdoor living area with a 6 person hot tub and evening lights to create a warm and romantic setting. Although you are tucked away in the woods with all the privacy Bear Affair is just a 5 minute drive to downtown Helen. If you plan to go to Anna Ruby Falls then you are about 2 minutes away. Make sure you plan some time so that you will be able to take in all of the sites but still have time to relax with some down time. No pets allowed! Guest must be 21 years or older to rent this cabin. ID is required. More

The cabin was perfect for a quiet getaway. Good amenities, comfortable bed. I would add a generic assortment of spices and oil for cooking but that did not detract from our stay. We would absolutely return here. Would love to see it in winter.

This delightful rental is secluded and yet minutes from all the fun. The perfect location to relax and get away, or participate in all the experiences (rafting, tubing, zip line, trail hikes, shopping and more) North Georgia has to offer. The Bear Affair easily accommodates...More

2 nights was not a long enough stay. The Bear Affair is an absolutely wonderful cabin. At the end of a secluded road, there is no traffic from other renters. Travel to the very end and you will find yourself in the parking area directly...More
